Yes, It’s true. I made the cupcakes for my wedding! Now I’m no perfectionist! My goal with any DIY that I do is to have it be functional and look nice.
Here is what I used to make these cupcakes:
I made two different kind of cake. Lemon and Vanilla to go with our White and Yellow theme. And yes, I did use box cake mixes and store bought frosting! There just wasn’t enough time to do it from scratch.
The Lemon cupcakes were a huge hit! And the lemon icing was way easier to pipe than the vanilla. The vanilla was more thick and actually hurt my arms to squeeze the piping bag.
Typically when I make cupcakes I just get white wrappers but I decided to be a bit fancier for the wedding. I used silver wrappers and then added a cupcake skirt around them for added cuteness. Note that you should never bake a cupcake with the skirt on it. Only bake cupcakes in cupcake wrappers.
For the fanciness, I piped on the icing in a spiral, added some beaded sprinkles, and added a couple Love toothpicks.
Nick created the stand out of really thick poster board while I was icing the cupcakes.
Here’s some fun photos from the wedding! I especially love the one of Lola getting the first taste!
